    The Hawaiian alphabet, introduced by missionaries

    The Hawaiian alphabet, introduced by missionaries in the 1820's consist of five vowels and only seven consonants.


    shouldn't we use consists instead of consist here? Because alphabet is a countable noun!

    Thanks!

    Yes, because "alphabet" is singular.

    I'd put a comma after 1820s.
